We propose to measure differences in patient safety and quality measures among three groups: the control group consisting of physicians with paper-based office practices, a group of physicians using the clinical messaging system and electronic prescribing, and a group of physicians using the EMR and electronic prescribing.
We plan to introduce a vendor based electronic prescribing system by July 2005. This system will be offered to all physicians using clinical messaging and will be integrated with the EMR system. The system will have clinical decision support, such as checks for drug-drug interactions.
Our evaluation will measure differences in rates of medication errors and quality measures amongst these three groups. We will use a study design of a pre-post evaluation with a comparison control group. We will detect medical errors by prescription and chart review. We will determine compliance with quality measures through a combination of electronic data and chart review.
